As a recent subscriber to NGTO, I have really enjoyed it!!!
I have just finished building a driftboat and would like some advice. I have fished the Hiwassee River in TN several times, especially the Big Bend area. Can anyone advise on the best route across the "Stairsteps" to avoid trashing the boat. I've seen boats go over it before but never really paid attention to the route.
I'm also planning on fishing it pretty hard this fall and winter, and you guys are welcome to join me. If you've never fished out of a driftboat, it is great. My back and knees are never sore from climbing over all those rocks.
Thanks in advice.
